Playing Catch-up in the Splendid Sampler QAL

After all of the wedding pandemonium, I finally have had time to quilt again.  Yea!   I am about 4 or 5 blocks behind.   Today I finished two.  This one is called Pieces of Friendship.  It was very quick and easy.

I alway feel so good when I trim the block and it comes to a beautifully straight and perfect 6.5″ square.  I just love to look at it sitting all neat and pretty with the others in the 6.5″ square napkin holder I have had for a long time.  Isn’t it a sweet day when you can find a new purpose for an ordinary object around the house?

All neat and pretty!

The next block I made is called “Lina’s Gift”. This one also was not too tricky. The hardest thing about this block was the half square triangles.

The directions were easy peasey though, and I was able to use my Quilt in a Day square up ruler to make the task even easier:)

You just place the line marked with the size of square you want on the stitched seam and trim up and down with the rotary cutter.   You end up with a beautiful finished square when you are done:)

It has definitely been SWEET joining all the wonderful quilters from around the world as we make this sampler. You can check it here.
